Donnacas Posted August 10, 2014 Report Share Posted August 10, 2014 I wanted to ask, has anyone else experienced anger or just plain annoyance at certain people in the early stages of loss? I'm having a hard time with it towards certain people. One is an employee of my late husband's- her presumption about how much she is free to do and allow others to do at his office is really getting to me. She is also assuming that I don't know about some personal favors my husband did for her and I find it ticks me off that she actually thinks my husband snuck around behind my back for her. Another person that I find myself totally frustrated and annoyed with is a very dear friend of mine. There is no reason for this at all and I know it. All she is trying to do is be my friend but everything she says just runs me the wrong way. I get annoyed because she asks me how I slept, I get annoyed when she sympathizes when I complain. I get annoyed when she tries to talk about something going on in her life. I don't understand why. I almost don't want to even talk to her at all, but then when I don't, I feel abandoned. And the last one is the one that really worries me. My mother in law. It makes me pure mad when she cries. I can't seem to help myself. She posted a tribute article in our local paper, totally innocent, but it just went all over me. She went by my husbands office to run copies of something and proceeded to go back to his office and introduce herself to the person who is purchasing his business and that ticked me off too. None of these feelings really make sense to me, in reasoning or intensity. Especially my mother in law who has been basically wonderful to me. I know I shouldn't feel this way, but for some reason, the overwhelming sense that I get is that they are all seeking the attention spotlight. Which I shouldn't care about because I definitely do NOT want it for myself. I really just want to be left alone. So why do I care if they have it? Anyone else been through this? What do you do?
